Astoria, OR -- Less than 24 hours after our 16th Anniversary Party, 2 of us hit the road with 18 kegs in our new refrigerated truck. The beer, IPA Chronicle 6: FL-Oregon Trail, is an IPA brewed with orange peel & FL orange blossom honey created specifically for the 25th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival.
With little time to spare, our first 5 days were a high-speed burn to Portland, OR. We drove through Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, & finally Oregon. Here are some shots from the road:
